Where did the couches go?


You may have noticed something different about the library this semester. We did a little redecorating over the summer. The old seating area in the library lobby has been replaced with an information desk that combines the services of the Student Help Desk, formerly in MCT, and the library reference desk, also known as the “Ask us Anything” desk. We have incorporated these services into the information desk to serve you better. At the old “Ask us Anything” desk, we noticed that many students asked us technology related questions that we simply were not equipped to answer. We had to send students out into the cold, the heat, the rain, and all sorts of undesirable weather conditions, to MCT. By bringing the Student Help Desk into the library, we’ll be able to solve your computer problems and your research problems all in one place.

Can’t log on to the wireless network? Computer infected with malware? Can’t figure out how to change your network password? 
We've got Technical Support!

Can’t narrow down your research topic? Having trouble locating sources for a paper? Don’t know how to cite something in MLA style? Ask us Anything!

Because you’re so studious, you’re probably thinking “Wow, how convenient.” But, I bet there are other people out there who are wondering “Where did the couches go? I used to sit there all the time!” Don’t worry, friends. I too enjoy sitting on comfortable furniture. Lucky for you, the couches still exist—we just moved them. Around the corner from the new information desk you’ll see there are still a variety of seating options to choose from so you can study alone or work with friends.

Come check out the new information desk for yourself!
